his Nashville based designer has such a lovely approach to fresh and classic cottage and farmhouse style interiors! But before we even get to Rachel Halvorson Inspired Decorating Tips, let’s consider five ideas Rachel has shared for creating cozy rooms.
Rachel Halvorson Inspired Decorating Tips
Rachel Halvorson Decor Ideas
Lighting. Get the lighting right. Put everything on a dimmer in order to control the mood.
Add Age. Incorporate antiques or one-of-a-kind items, so your house doesn’t look like a showroom.
Art. Collect artwork. There’s nothing that makes a home feel more lived-in and comfortable than art on the walls.
Scale. Watch your scale. Comfortable furniture doesn’t have to be bulky. Go for sleek but cozy pieces.
Think Layers. Layer textures. Don’t be afraid to mix textures in a room, especially if you have a neutral color scheme.

Simple Patriotic Vignette
This is such a classic way to add a warm welcome to a country hall or entry way.
Artwork with an equestrian theme is right at home in modern farmhouse interiors. I personally am partial to abstract works.
Cheerful Breakfast Nook
I’m crazy about the airy light mood the designer created in a small space.
This space feels calm with the restrained neutral palette and the merging of different textures (rope, rustic wood, woven tobacco basket, linen…) and interest.
Sleek Yet Approachable
This kitchen dining area feels chic and sleek while still inviting. The chairs look comfortable, and all the curves bring balance to the clean lines of the room’s architecture.
White and Gold Bathroom
I love a herringbone floor, whether it’s marble or hardwood!
I love the mix of cool grey with warm golds.
These silvery options would be gorgeous with a warm wall and accents.
Timeless Black and White
Pink…Subtle and Bold
Pops of Modern
This acrylic end table is a versatile piece that can even function as a tray for breakfast in bed!
And now let’s revisit one Rachel Halvorson’s beautiful projects…a Tennessee mountain cottage.
Rachel Halvorson Interiors
This beautiful Tennessee mountain cottage with Carpenter-Gothic-style and modern farmhouse interior design was featured here in Southern Living.
If you love shiplap, beadboard, planked wood, board-and-batten, and swaths of white paint, these interiors will be right at home on your Pinterest boards!
I love the neutral palette (which makes room for bold colorful statements like the rug in a bedroom below) and all the charm infused with vintage finds and natural materials.
Onward to lovely.
Is this the coziest sectional and stair landing on the planet?
*shakes magic-8 ball*
“Signs point to YES.”
Cottage Entry and Staircase
Where to put your collection of vintage wee children’s chairs?
Front and center in the entry!
And doesn’t the staircase look like a perfect picture of simplicity and warmth? For more ideas from rustic and minimal to dreamy and fantastical…check out this ditty all about inspiring stairs.
If you are a shabby chic freak, then perhaps the chenille bedspreads and Frenchie looking twin beds are tugging at your heartstrings and nostalgic soul.
I personally love a Beachy Swedish California flavor of shabby chic which you can score a
taste of in this treasure trove of lovely.
I have not seen rustic open shelving quite like this flanking a pedestal sink, and it’s
killer genius. Notice the little hooks added for even more function and daily ease.
Rachel Halvorson, your mix mastery and small space pretty organization skills are the goat.
I had to stare at this bedroom above for a few moments to thoroughly take in the voodoo applied to this gorgeous tiny space with a great big bed and even grander style.
Looks like the room may not have even accommodated the headboard, and yet it can function as a comfy cozy sleeping space. (I pity the one who must do the acrobatics and workout entailed with wrestling a fitted sheet successfully, but it would burn some serious calories!)
